As it turns out, I just wasn't doing the right craft.
A lot of my crafting time was spent trying to find people to foist my crafts on; which led to not doing so many crafty things. because of Etsy and cross stitching, I've done pieces that I wanted to do and thought were nifty. Listing them on Etsy takes away a lot of the anxiety of what I'd do with them after. Even if no one buys them and I keep having to re-list them, I still have the satisfaction that they are for someone, I just don't know who yet.
So far I've only got two kinds of things in my Etsy shop: pinback buttons and cross stitch projects. If I manage to try out some more crafts, check my Etsy, they might show up there.
